    *The Dinosaur Truckers are coming back to Cowboy Up. With support act by Derek Dunn (ex .357 String band) from USA. Ever since they started out in 2006, the Dinosaur Truckers have toured excessively all over Europe and gained the reputation of a definite can’t miss live band, forcing steaming atmo and dripping sweat at any given show. Whether they play at blazing speed or temporarily slow it down for a somber ballad, they’re not the ones to sing about sweet country sunshine but offer up the pure, uncut, unadulterated form – potent and dangerous and not for the faint of heart. Although rooted deep in American music, the Dinosaur Truckers certainly aren’t just yet another folk act. This four piece band merges a wide range of styles: From fast-paced bluegrass to country, punk, rockabilly and at times even mariachi impact, they display tremendous breadth of sound and influence and deliver with giant energy. Sinds ze begonnen in 2006, hebben de Dinosaur Truckers overmatig getoerd in heel Europa en kregen de reputatie van een bepaalde live band die niet te missen valt, waardoor stomende atmospheer en druipt het zweet op om het even welk show. Of ze spelen op hoge snelheid of tijdelijk vertragen voor een sombere ballade, zij zijn niet degenen die zingen over zoete Country zonneschijn, maar bieden de pure, onversneden, onvervalste vorm – krachtige en gevaarlijk en niet voor de zwakkeren van hart. Hoewel diep geworteld in de Amerikaanse muziek, de Dinosaur Truckers zijn zeker niet alleen nog een folk act. Deze vier koppige band voegt een breed scala aan stijlen: van snelle bluegrass tot Country, punk, rockabilly en soms zelfs mariachi effect, tonen ze een enorme breedte van geluid en invloed en leveren die met gigantische energie. Derek W. Dunn, former lead singer/guitarist for the late .357 String Band, returns to the stage with a solo & acoustic set. With influences ranging from Gospel to Bluegrass and from Country Blues to Rock and Roll, Dunn’s material is far from “singer-songwriter”; rather, he exists in the jack-of-all-trades realm of the traveling folk musician – Black Country originals exist side by side with earnest Hank Williams covers; a finger-picked ballad precedes a foot-stomping explosion of Blues. With nothing more than an acoustic guitar and a broken tambourine, it’s part Woody Guthrie, part Leadbelly, and part Keith Moon. Derek W. Dunn, voormalig zanger / gitarist van de late .357 String Band, keert terug naar het podium met een solo en akoestische set. Met invloeden variërend van Gospel Bluegrass en van Country Blues tot Rock en Roll, Dunn’s materiaal is verre van “singer-songwriter”, maar veeleer, bestaat hij in de jack-of-all-trades rijk van de reizende volksmusicus – Black Country originelen naast elkaar bestaan ​​met ernstig Hank Williams beslaat, een-vinger geplukt ballad gaat vooraf aan een voet-stampende explosie van Blues. Met niets meer dan een akoestische gitaar en een gebroken tamboerijn, het is een deel van Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly deel, en een deel Keith Moon. http://dinosaurtruckers.de/ http://www.reverbnation.com/derekwdunn

Q: Thanks for the new album, great songs. It would be great to see you in Canada sometime, think you'll ever make it to Alberta?

A: Thank you! If someone were to book me a show in Alberta that covered my expenses to get there, I imagine enough time has passed since my youthful indiscretions that the good people of the Canadian Border Patrol would let me in...if those two pretty big "ifs" work out, I'd be down...
